Twango and Cobalt present Port Erin and Sauvage
“(Ocean Grey) sounds awesome. The artwork could be from the opening
credits of a Scandi-TV thriller and the music plays out in somewhat similar fashion. Tense, edgy
atmospherics with lovely guitar textures on “Just Like TV”. Add horns and you’ve got the funky,
rock-noir vibe of “Half Cut Moon”. It’s kinda prog, but cool prog, if you know what I mean.”
-David Sinclair, The Times.
Garnering near-cult status as purveyors of original genre-bending music, Port Erin are a band of three. Two brothers- Reuben Myles Tyghe, vocals and guitar, flanked by Jacob Myles Tyghe on bass and Cerys Brocklehurst on drums. They hail from Broughton Gifford (a very small village tucked away in South West England) and formed in January 2007.
Named after the French for "Wild", Sauvage are a heady cocktail of Indie & Psych; shaken over ice and set on fire with a blowtorch. Their "sound" is a driving rhythm section, soaked in vocal harmonies, with epic soundscapes and dynamic arrangements.
"A blissful first offering from Sauvage..." - LittleIndieBlogs
